3 The valve seat of the faucet is leaking. If the faucet still drips after replacing the gasket, there may be a problem with the valve seat of the faucet. Damage to the gasket may cause the valve seat of the faucet to be worn out by the metal valve core, or the deposition of chemicals in the water may form a residue that prevents the gasket from being completely pressed against the valve seat.
4 The O-ring of the faucet can also cause the faucet to leak. The faucet in the kitchen has one or more O-rings to prevent water from gushing around the outlet. If the O-ring is worn out, every time you turn on the faucet, you will see water from the bottom of the outlet.
